Structural mechanics and experimental approach
DESIGN ROBUST AND HIGH RELIABLE PARTS
The design of a mechanical part can be done efficiently today with the use of finite element method. This numerical approach of structural mechanics use discretization of the entire part to look at areas with high mechanical stresses in order to design against catastrophic failures.
WHICH MATERIALS TO USE ?
Mechanical properties of a material is characterized by different parameters.
like the tensile strength … etc
Young’s modulus and elongation at failure are also essential parameters and designers are unable to predict robust structures without those informations.
Designing of a simple ladder or a more complexbmechanical structure such as airplanes or cars , it will be mandatory to know those different parameters on the material used to manufacture the part – It is then possible to verify if the material used complies with the technical specifications.
